A color sorting printable to help your child learn colors
I’ve been working with N (24 months) on sorting and colors. I made this activity to use on our new magnetic white board. Just print, cut, laminate, and attach magnetic tape to the back of each piece.
Don’t have a magnetic board? Use the fridge or sort them on the floor!
learning colors
Line up the color words on the left or on the top and line up the matching colored objects below/beside the labels.
color sorting
If using all six colors is overwhelming, sort two colors at a time.
There are so many possibilities on how you can use this! You could even make a book or collages with each color.

    My girls and I had fun with this activity! I used electrical tape to make a grid on our dry erase board to sort the pictures into “boxes”. Thank you so much for sharing! Since I can’t post pictures here is a link to my Facebook page.
    Thanks again!
